Le petit village de Xian a été englouti par la mégapole chinoise de Guangzhou (Canton), en pleine expansion. Les villageois sont sommés de quitter leur petite maison. Mais AH Zhong, un ancien irréductible villageois, résiste et réussit. Il devient un modèle pour les autres. Malheureusement, il paie cher sa victoire à la Pyrrhus.

Chinese cities expand and gradually absorb the countryside. The village of Yangji was yet another victim to the expansion, which benefits local developers linked to the government. Rural residents are forced to vacate their simple dwellings and make room for new houses and entrepreneurs from the cities. The vast majority of local resistance will subside despite meager compensation and low prospects for decent housing, but Azhong is one of a handful of people who choose to fight against the corrupt system. He does not intend to give up his home. This raw documentary, revealing the inhuman dimension of the Chinese construction boom, is based on his immediate testimony from a barricaded apartment.
